- Vidor worked for many years at Columbia Pictures, although he did not get along particularly well with Harry Cohn, the studio owner. Cohn had a reputation as a crude and foul-mouthed man, in addition to being a vindictive one. Vidor tired of Cohn's constant swearing and profanity--much of it directed at him--and in 1946 he took Cohn to court in an attempt to get him to stop. He lost the case, and Cohn made his life a living hell until 1948, when Vidor bought out his contract for $75,000.
